Houfongbé
Houfongbé A. is 53 years old, married, the mother of four, and is the guardian of a child from her deceased older brother. Her husband is primarily a carpenter. Twelve years ago, to help with family expenses, she entered into commerce in «gari» (granulated cassava flour), a flourishing business. Despite being illiterate, she is a disciplined manager. Her good experience managing loans need not be demonstrated any further. She is requesting a loan of $650 to acquire a field of cassava plants. Cassava roots are made into gari, which is widely consumed in the region. This loan, when released, will really benefit her, since she will have a higher income, something that will make a difference in her family’s standard of living
